Divine Ecstasy as a Way of Removing Obstacles in Life

Joy as a metaphor for Divine EcstasyNancy Smeltzer, MFA

In the previous posting, I wrote about how my body brain, reptilian brain, or unconscious mind had in the past chosen pain over pleasure or Divine Ecstasy. I imagine that many of you thought that to be pretty incredulous as to why one would do that, as well.. constant pain hurts. The first thing to remember is that all of this choosing is being done on the unconscious level, based on irrational associations, usually made in early childhood. The glimmers that I’ve experienced of Divine Joy or Ecstasy are mind blowing to say the least. The obstacles that get quickly removed in my life are exhilarating. However, the experience is not to be taken lightly and needs to be done with someone who is trained in spiritual crises, because if the awakening is done too quickly, then unknown, underlying traumas can arise and will probably be dealt with as a psychotic break by traditional Western medicine.

One of the disconcerting symptoms for me as was the increased vibration of my body as I moved more towards being aligned with the increasing frequency of the planet. Known as the Schumann resonance, I first experienced the increasing vibrations on my legs as what I call “electric ants”. It was as if I was being bitten by hundreds of little tiny fire ants (try explaining that to your local emergency room; I chose not to do so.) After a few weeks, and a lot of help from colleagues, the vibrations abated, only to appear several months later. This time, I experienced them as full body shakings internally. It was as if I was terrified of something and/or was freezing cold, which were the only other times I had experienced shivering that intensely. (Meanwhile, this was happening in the middle of summer, with the outside temperature approaching 95 degreed F or 35 degrees C). Again, with the help of colleagues, we cleared boatloads of issues and removed many obstacles in my life that I didn’t even know that they were there and the sense of fear and cold left me.

I was one a metaphysical e-list the other day where a practitioner was asking if anyone had any experience with cleaning up someone who had had a bad experience with Kundalini energy. Kundalini is part of Tantra, a type of Eastern spiritual practice. Unfortunately, the West has mostly focused on the sexual aspects of Tantra, ignoring the rest of the belief system which is meant to encompass all of one’s life. While many people enjoy the “fun” of Tantra, some have underlying traumas arise too quickly, and if the person leading the group, is inexperienced at handling spiritual emergencies, the person whose issues are rising can end up in a psych ward. That’s why Tantric practices traditionally were experienced as a religious ritual with lots of preparation and cleansing and clearing ahead of time.

For myself, now when I’ve allowed myself to let go of the fear of surrendering, I can go for several days of a lower intensity of joy and bliss. I don’t feel like I’m spiraling out of control and I’m just happy. Quite a difference from the “electric ants” sensation on my legs a few years ago, and a much more sustainable place for this human body to operate from.

Have you ever had instances where you felt you were spinning out of control? Was there a specific event that began the experience and how were you able to handle it?

About Nancy Smeltzer

I'm passionate about long distance spiritual and alternative healing, having had a successful practice now for over ten years. My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
